It seems as though interest rates on deposit accounts are just getting worse and worse, which makes finding a competitive feel near impossible. Luckily, there are still financial institutions in the area that are providing excellent CD rates if you know where to find them.

This is especially true for, which tend to offer the best rates.

About 24-Month Certificates of Deposit

Certificates of deposit come in several terms, which refers to the amount of time your money remains on deposit. A 24-month CD is considered to be longer-term than other accounts. There are a number of reasons why you may go with a longer term of 24 months.

The top reason, however, is that a long-term CD generally allows you to obtain a higher interest rate. This is because banks and credit unions try to encourage account holders to keep their funds on deposit longer.

That means a 24-month CD is a great choice if you are interested in earning a better rate than a savings account can provide and–most importantly–you can afford to keep your money on deposit for a full 2 years.
